At the risk of sounding like a bad person...
Trying to counteract this factor, I've often voted for such people
that I thought would be great and would be unknown in the wider
community, and omitted voting for people I liked that I knew would
make it on the board anyway (often making sure to select fewer
than the maximum I was allowed). I was hoping it would even out the
number of votes a little bit, and make those who didn't get elected
feel more encouraged to try again.
What can be bad about this? I do this too.
That if everyone does this the results will be surprising and unstable.
